The Valley of the Nuns (Curral da Freiras) might be one of the coolest places you can visit in all of Portugal—and this tour makes it easy to explore the area. Not only is it a village built on the crater of an extinct volcano, but it was once a place where nuns would hide when pirates attacked the city of Funchal. Plus, during this tour, you’ll stop by the fishing village, Câmara de Lobos, and try a traditional Madeira drink.

Our driver/guide, Diogo, took us to three distinct places and allowed enough time to explore and take photos. He planned it so we would have optimal weather in each place. His English was excellent, he gave us interesting information and insights, and he answered any questions we might have. A very worthwhile afternoon. Excellent value for money!
Excellent tour

Diogo was our guide today, he was excellent, ensuring all occupants of the bus could understand him - he spoke English, German, French, etc. he allowed us plenty of time at each view point to allow us to enjoy the stunning scenery.

The guide kept the pace of the tour moving, but still allowed time for side tours into several small towns so we had adequate time and opportunity for getting more of a feel for the culture and daily lives of the population. Good background was provided and was always available for questions and suggenstions.

Well worth €15 each. Tour guide was very good and spoke good English. Would definitely recommend. Half a day and good price. Have chosen out tours through viator & Lido. Always on time and no problems booking. Will use again when away in September.
Best tour on Madeira!

Doris was very knowledgable of Madeira valley. We visited the local fishing village and saw some fishermen catching tiny crabs on low tides. She told us about silver banana but we couldn't find any in the market. The she offered us banana passion fruit, that was unique, it looked like banana but it's really passion fruit. We have a very enjoyable tour with Doris.
